Dear Skyline Users,
Since its inception in August 2008, Skyline has been free, open-source software with free documentation, instruction and support available to anyone willing to download and use it. We are happy to report that that original vision is very much alive 9 years on and today we've tallied over 75,000 downloads, there are over 9000 registered Skyline users and over 9000 instances of Skyline started each week. However, keeping Skyline going is not free and one of the major sources of funding is through all of the major instrument manufacturers. All six mass spectrometry manufacturers generously support Skyline through funding which they renew on a yearly basis. It is always important that each of these vendors realizes the benefits that Skyline brings to their hardware customers and how crucial continued sponsorship of Skyline is to you.
We last came to you two years ago for "letters of appreciation" for the manufacturers of the instruments you use and Skyline supports, and you helped immensely with 250 letters. This year, we will make it even easier -- just "sign" any of our letters of appreciation (attached below) addressed to the primary contact at each of the six instrument vendors.
To sign a letter, click the button below to sign-in and proceed to register your appreciation.
Thank you for your support!
-- the Skyline Team
